After upgrading to 3.0.26a and moving to linux my member 
server gets hundreds of IPC$ connections when I run 
smbstatus.  I also see in my logs the following...

[2007/10/01 10:01:15, 0] 
  tdb_chainlock_with_timeout_internal: alarm (10) timed out 
for key VALDEZ in tdb /usr/local/samba/private/secrets.tdb

I did a dump of secrets on my old server and there wasnt a 
key for Valdez there.

Now valdez is of teh DC's for the Domain.  I dont start 
seeing all of thsi until we get high activity.  All the 
clients do is login into teh domain and then we have a bat 
file on the DC that mounts their home directory on this 

Can anyone point me in the right direction for tracking down 
why this is happening.
